Mine also does this, and I've simply learned to feather the throttle to the point where I don't get that bothered by it, but it does sometimes become a bit annoying, especially around town. I figured since I still my powertrain warranty, I can get it taken care of between now, and 2019 or within the next 42k miles.
If it becomes much more annoying to the point where I cannot stand it, and/or the transmission begins to fail, then I'll hope to get a new transmission, and take it in. If I have to take Badger in for something else though down the way, I'll bring up the lag/hesitation situation.
